Mobisol Solar Home Systems Micro-Scale PoA(ID: 103000000001046)
- In Africa, about 600 million people (60% of the population) have no access to electricity. They use inefficient and costly fuel-based lighting sources such as kerosene lamps, which greatly curtail their socio-economic activities once darkness sets in.
The programme, managed by Mobisol, delivers a clean, affordable alternative to fossil fuels for low-income households living without access to reliable energy thereby helping the development of sustainable markets for affordable, modern off-grid lighting solutions for low-income households and small enterprises.
Mobsiol, the project developer combines solar energy with innovative mobile technology and microfinance to provide high-tech solar home systems (SHS) to developing countries in Africa with initial implementation in Tanzania. Mobisol has further identified Rwanda, Ghana, and Kenya as other potential target areas for programme activities.
